As a Level Four Partner of the We Honor Veterans program, Care Dimensions has joined with the U.S. Department of the Veterans’ Affairs and the National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization to empower hospice professionals to meet the unique needs of dying Veterans.
The program teaches respectful inquiry, compassionate listening and grateful acknowledgement – to comfort patients with a history of military service and possibly physical or psychological trauma.
“Care Dimensions is dedicated to promoting and providing the highest quality end-of- life care for our Veterans and to educating community organizations who also provide services for Veterans,” said Sheryl Meehan, director of volunteer services and chair of the Veterans committee at Care Dimensions.
